The Samsung Galaxy C5 was recently certified by TENAA


After being certified by TENAA, China's version of the FCC, the Samsung Galaxy C5 has been given the green light by the FCC itself. Carrying the SM-C5000 model number, the device should be unveiled at a special event in China this coming Thursday, May 26th. We also expect to see the Samsung Galaxy C7 (SM-C7000) greet the light of day at that very same event. However, neither TENAA nor the FCC have yet certified the handset.

The FCC documentation confirmed that the Galaxy C5 will be powered by a 2600mAh battery. The TENAA approval revealed much more about the specs such as the 5.2-inch AMOLED screen carrying a 1080 x 1920 FHD display. The rear camera will be either 16MP or 8MP, and there will be an 8MP front-facing snapper for selfies and video chats.

The Snapdragon 617 chipset under the hood will contain an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU, and the Adreno 405 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB or 64GB of native storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking additional storage, and Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, Bluetooth, USB and GPS. Only 6.7mm thin, the Galaxy C5 weighs in at 153 grams.

Pricing and availability should be announced this Thursday.

2600mAh? Bruh. For some reason I see this device as the Samsung Galaxy Alpha 2, or maybe we'll see that later this year?

Unless we are surprised with something better than the S617, this shouldn't be called an Alpha 2. I seriously hope we see it later this year but I doubt it.
